DV8 Designs gives fresh look to ‘much-loved’ Cheadle Hulme pub

DV8 Designs, The Hesketh 2THE Hesketh in Cheadle Hulme, part of North West group Almond Family Pubs, has been renovated by Warrington-based DV8 Designs.

“Our brief was to retain the pub’s traditional charm, which is a firm favourite amongst friends and families alike,” said DV8 managing director Lee Birchall.

“Many local competitors have been modernised and themed, leaving The Hesketh as the only traditional pub in town, so the design plays to this strength as a unique selling point.

“Some of the spaces were awkward, so we have re-considered the flow and layout forming more comfortable areas on arrival and around the bar area.

“A key element when re-designing the site was its leading entrance, which we have extended to make it much more welcoming and attractive, ensuring that customers can enjoy the impressive design elements of the pub from the moment they arrive.”

An earthy colour scheme runs throughout while key furnishing elements include wing-back arm chairs and rubbed back painted timbers to form the country pub’s intimate characteristics.

In addition to the updated interior, a new pergola has also been installed.

Lee added: “An important feature of The Hesketh is its on-site carvery so our designs have ensured that this space becomes more functional during busy periods, whilst still retaining its charm and aesthetic.

“We have also recladded the bar while refurbishing its existing dividing screens to ensure that guests at The Hesketh can enjoy a new look yet familiar feel for their much-loved pub.”

James Almond, director of Almond Family Pubs, said: “The Hesketh enjoys ongoing success after 11 years since we have held its reigns. However, it needed a ‘sparkle’ as some of the once contemporary elements had become dated while the traditional features had only grown in charm.

“This inspired us and the team at DV8 Designs to enhance the existing features and play to the strengths of the historic pub.”
